bring down the hairline by 1-1.5 cm to make the forehead less protruding / bony and more cute looking. This is especially
popular in Korea for some years now.

The harvest area can usually be covered by hair as most women fashion long or shoulder length hair, so after operation

Localized Hair Loss
Local hair loss occurs from scaring and non-scaring diagnoses. Alopecia Areata is a genetic condition and is the most
common non-scaring etiology of hair loss. Scaring hair loss is seen in Lupus, Lichen Planus, or local radiation. Baldness
from injuries, or from local medical problems that have been cured, are usually amenable to hair transplantation.
Patterned Hair Loss
Some women have a hair loss pattern similar to men. Women with male pattern loss typically have thinning in the frontal
hairline and the top of the scalp, while the sides of the scalp remain relatively spared. Women with this hair loss pattern
make excellent candidates for surgical restoration.
Diffuse Hair Loss
Diffuse thinning of the scalp is the most common form of female hair loss. Diffuse thinning involves a reduction in the
diameter and thickness of the hair shaft. The medical term for this type of thinning is "Diffuse Un-patterned Alopecia".
These women have thinning that involves the donor area so that women with this type of hair loss are generally not good
candidates for surgery.
